I had a upper and lower eyelid surgery 6 month ago and my lower eyelid appears puffy no matter what I do.
After the surgery I had the usual cooling packs and upright position in bed to enhance the healing. After three weeks the surgeon advised, as the puffiness didn't subside satisfactory, to have LPG treatment to stimulate the lymph flow. In total I had 20 LPG treatments.
Today 6 month after the surgery my lower eyelids look worse than before.
KIndly advise what I should do.
Dear Dr. Buis,
many thanks for your response.
In regards to your first question, I didn't loos any weight before and after the surgery.
Second, I didn't try this position with head lower than feet.
Many thanks & Regards,
Thanks for your query regarding puffy eyelid. You need to be evaluated again whether it is edema or orbital fat. If it is fat then revision surgery will be required along with fat grafting.

I think during the surgery of the lower eye lids the orbital septum was opened (inorder to remove fatty tissue) and not closed there after. Due to this more retro occula fatty tissue moved forward and now you have fatty eye lid backs. This can be corrected any time e.g. by means of pushing the fatty tissue back again, behind the eye ball and repairing the orbital septum.

I picked Formé Clinic and specifically Dr. Vašek because my friends recommended it.
I had a blepharoplasty on upper and lower eyelids and I was really satisfied with result from the beginning.
